Blue Jackets to meet with Carter

From the Blue Jackets Extra at the Dispatch:

Get Carter

Multiple sources from around the NHL have confirmed today that a Blue Jackets contingent, led by GM Scott Howson, is traveling to meet with newly-acquired center Jeff Carter today.

One source indicated that majority owner John P. McConnell and captain Rick Nash are with Howson, that they were traveling to Philadelphia. Neither Howson nor Nash immediately responded to text messages from The Dispatch seeking comment.

Another source said that Blue Jackets forward R.J. Umberger plans to meet the contingent and Carter in Philadelphia.

Carter was traded to the Blue Jackets on Thursday. But as of Saturday, Carter had not spoken to any member of the Blue Jackets, including Howson. The only communication was a brief text message exchange with Nash.

His agent, Rick Curran, told The Dispatch this morning that Carter will play with the Blue Jackets. "I don't think it's going to be an issue," Curran said.
